Black Dynamite on DVD/Blu this Tuesday. Animated series on the way.

Posted by Bryan White | Friday February 12, 2010 | News

I’ve been yelling about Black Dynamite (review) since 2008 and last year I named Black Dynamite the Cinema Suicide top pick of 2009. My most anticipated movie of the year turned out to be my favorite movie of the year thanks to a hilarious script and one of the best comic performances of the last decade by Michael Jai White. Unfortunately, the movie has only been making the rounds on film festivals and in a limited theatrical run so really, you were pretty lucky if you got to see it on the big screen.

Now’s your chance, though! Black Dynamite will be hitting DVD and Blu-ray this Tuesday, the 16th and you can buy it at just about every available outlet. I strongly recommend that you preorder now.

The good news doesn’t end there, either! Though it’s just barely a mention in the press release, director Scott Sanders aludes to an upcoming Black Dynamite animated series that will be running on Cartoon Network’s Adul Swim at some point in 2010. Unfortunately, the news ends there.

    can’t wait to see this. Especially after your review. Have you watched “Bitch slap” yet?

    Can’t wait. Never got a chance to see this in the theater, and that pissed me off.

    Best ghost of Abe Lincoln cameo ever.

    Saw this in a theater a few weeks ago and laughed myself silly. Easily the funniest flick I’ve seen in years. I’m not too thrilled at the thought of an Adult Swim animated version, though, as it was as much the live-action visuals and authenticity that made it enjoyable as the writing.
